@multinational:  The magic will come back on your wedding day and again when you see your pics.

@multinational: 

Well said!  I made about 10 different invites, and then finally ordered some samples to get fresh ideas.  Then, my Fiance drew a picture of an aspen tree, and I put the wording on, and we have a perfect invite.  Then for the RSVP card he did the drawing of leaves and I again did the wording.  I was a little bummed that all of my hard work went to waste, but I love the finished product.

I think my issue was that what I was trying was still similar the last one I made.  Then I kept making the same mistakes and got frustrated.  Try something completely different, or ask your Fiance to try to make one.  But the magic will indeed come back!

@multinational:  I felt the same way after designing, troubleshooting, printing, and assembling our invites. Then I sent them out, I have gotten so much positive feedback and compliments that it has made it worth itSmile hang in there,I promise it will be worth it in the end!

@multinational:  I felt that way about my DIY programs, but man when they were done they were so beautiful and worth the effort!

@multinational:  I know exactly what you mean. I’m doing my invites too and after making so many trial ones and running into so many walls, I’m just done. I don’t even think they look good anymore! Although my Future Mother-In-Law assures me they do. Too much stress haha
